Victoria's Secret Fashion Show -- On the scene
The streets outside the Lexington Armory in downtown New York may have been blanketed in snow last night, but the Victoria’s Secret models inside weren’t exactly dressed for the weather.
Clad in circus-themed lingerie, the Angels sashayed down the ramp as Rihanna—who was wearing goggle-like glasses and a strapless black gown—kicked off the show with “Diamonds.” She was followed by Bruno Mars, who performed “Locked out of Heaven” alongside a live band and a bevy of beautiful models in holiday-themed pieces.
Bieber, on the other-hand, was joined only by a guitar player for his acoustic rendition of “As Long As You Love Me.” (Don’t worry. He wasn’t alone for long. The models joined him during a very high-energy performance of “Beauty and the Beat” later in the show).
RiRi hit the stage again—this time in a lingerie-style short pink frock—to close the show with her new track, “Fresh Out of the Runway,” while model Alessandra Ambrosio paraded down the ramp in the iconic $2.5 million Fantasy Bra.
Of course, celebrity-spotting wasn’t only limited to the stage. The front-row included some notable names as well, including Vanessa Hudgens and Gossip Girl’s Jessica Szohr, who capped off a night with a photo together by the stage, as well as Chord Overstreet and Russell Simmons (to name just a few).
